This is Chris Newall's Chimaera versions C1.001A, 12
Chimaera is an unusual adventure, recently ported by its author from
its original Prime FTN to ANSI C. Though clearly inspired by the
Crowther/Woods classic, it departs radically from all adventure and
adventure-like games that I've ever met: it is effectively infinite in
its size and has no easily definable upper score. See
what the author says about it.
- The game is not windows-aware and has to be run
in a console window.
- The game uses the sqaure root library function and if built from
the C source, it should be
linked with the maths library (-lm linker flag on Unix/Linux).
- If getting a Linux executable, remember
to set its "executable" flag before trying to run it.
